from nebraska. or even our own academic peers. harold lowe, critic of president bush's, right? pushing executive power. works for the obama administration and changes his tune and takes positions he harshly criticized when he was outside the executive branch. so i think, you know, the desire, as i said, to leave a legacy, that's what drives presidents, and a lot of their statements and posture -- it's posturing much more than true commitment to ideology that they can't compromise. so let me conclude by saying that a two-person presidency may seem radical for us, not so radical for europe, but dysfunction in washington has gotten to the point that radical reform is needed. the alternative to a two-person presidency is even greater partisan conflict and even more bad presidential decisions. so thank you for coming, and i'll look forward to your questions.

that this administration did early on, and the obama administrations continued a lot of the national security policies in the bush administration, to be clear. but they did establish this high value interrogation target group where we've got high value interrogation subjects, and they have a team that they keep very secret and under wraps that they sort of fly in to do, conduct the most important interrogations. and we have been told that they will be leading the interrogation of the boston suspect. how will that team approach interrogating this young man? >> i think they will do it like any fbi agent or any law enforcement individual will do it. these individuals are trained to collect intelligence from detainees. but also on the same time now we have a suspect who already was read his miranda rights. he already have a lawyer present. and i don't think that should affect any trained interrogator, any trained interviewer in doing their job. we have been doing this for many, many years. we did it against terrorist suspects, organized crimes, people who are charged with treason, spies, and it always wor

for all involved and will be something that president bush was unable to accomplish. it was something that president obama wasn't able to accomplish in his first term. i think the political world capitol hill right now sees that as the last opportunity for a really big piece of legislation, a legacy piece of legislation to occur. but steve i don't think we're going to have any resolution until we're talking about july august september. this is going to be in some ways like the health care legislation all over again we're going to see many twists and turns but the reason why the gun measure ended up failing and why immigration seems to have a chance is that immigration both parties have a interest to get it done. many republicans leaders see this as something they need to do as well to make sure that the 2012 elections where they lost latino business a huge margin doesn't happen again come 2016 or 2020. >> and the debate over the budget continues all summer as well. >> and that's right. talking about july august september that's probably also the timeframe that you would end up getting
a plane to get home. >> you're right harrison. something we're blaming on obama as well. they raised the debt ceiling multiple times for reagan, multiple times for george w. bush. john boehner forced this thing through the house. >> the irony is it is the republicans who didn't want to raise taxes on their constituents, especially the upper class. so they're now -- these people are trapped in airports. they have to buy chocolate bars that cost more than -- [ laughter ] >> i like it though because when you're sitting around the airport doing nothing you're stimulating the congressional experience. >> it is frightening. smaller government meant like less waste not cutting you know wasteful federal workers who, i don't know, keep planes from hitting each other! >> john: small government means you have to spend more time shopping at at tunes. -- at altitunes. >> the average person takes a plane once every three or four years. >> you were talking about the research. also nuclear waste is being cut. we're not even getting rid of stuff that's going to kill our children and grandchildren. >>
they want to. >> this is a matter of policy under the bush and especially the obama administration, connecting jihad holy war and islamists who embrace it and believe it is their god-directed obligation to engage in it with the attacks or terrorism we are supposed to be defending ourselves against has been impermissible. this is crazy and it has created, i think, vulnerabilities as has frankly the lessening of the engagement of the public in this war. you have been talking about it all morning the public helped enormously once those pictures wept up. it's very much the case that we need to have the public on the case all the time. it's kind of a question of are we on a war footing in the face of this jihadist threat. this global jihadist threat or aren't we? unless and until we are, i think we will wind up having a lot moornd worse of these kind of attacks. >> brian: do you believe there are other people involved with these two? >> there were other people involved certainly in providing, i suspect, freezing rain structure, training and support. we need to find them, too. >> brian:
point, i will be quiet. i promise. how about after 9-11, everyone was saying how george bush took everyone's freedoms away and obama was going to restore the freedoms, all of that. what happened to all of that? >> i have a problem with that. the patriot act should have been repealed. i have a problem with that. >> caller: so obama doubles the number of federal wiretaps. he expanded the patriot act. how are we more free with obama as president? >> stephanie: the difference is we do talk about that on the left. >> it is not because he's -- >> stephanie: not everything is cut-and-dried. i agree with the public safety exemption that he was not read miranda rights. but i disagree with john mccain and lindsey graham that he should be tried as an enemy combatant. >> caller: i agree too. one other thing -- >> stephanie: all right. after you. >> oh, no, you first. >> thank you. >> stephanie: it was magic wasn't it? [ ♪ magic wand ♪ ] >> stephanie: one more thing? no. not on my show. >> another 27 things. >> stephanie: i will be the judge of that whether there will be one more thing and
limbo. by treating them as criminal suspects, the obama administration is avoiding all kinds of risks and simply acting as the bush administration has in the past and as they have acted in other terrorist cases by using the normal criminal procedures. >> because lindsey graham and others say, yes, he should be tried as a u.s. citizen, should be tried in a u.s. civilian court, but that can await this process of doing some serious interrogation of him and designating him as an enemy combatant in the meantime. all of this is moot right now, because as you know, yesterday, he was formally given his miranda rights and a judge magistrate at his bed side with a court-appointed attorney, a public defender. this is moot as the obama administration has made its decision. is lindsey graham on sound legal ground, saying he should be tried in a civilian court, but held and questioned as an enemy combatant? >> i think the only fair answer to that question is we don't know. because it's never been done before in american history to have some sort of hybrid combatant and criminal proceeding. we do kn
to make anything political about it, but i cannot help but think life was a lot quieter when george bush was in office. ever since mr. obama has been in office, i can go all the way back to the gentlelady in california that was shot in ahead to all these terrorist in st.ts that we call people killing people, like in the movie house -- insane people killing each other, like in the movie house, and the man in texas that shot all the soldiers, and the people in benghazi that killed our ambassador. then i reflect back on how people behave in wisconsin when there governor made a decision that was controversial to their political point of view. and in the same thing happened in michigan. and the underwear br, wn waii, were it not for brave man, weoulkt that. and the man in new york who tried to blow up people in new york. : you talk about shootings. we can look back to the columbine high school shooting in colorado. then the 9/11 terror attacks. , ithe 9/11 terrorist attack monicao tell you, lewinsky was servicing bill clinton when he was talking to the sergeants about -- the saudis about them
there in boston right now, as president obama has to deal with that. >> reporter: that's true, one of the things that george w. bush said after 9/11 that i thought was the right thing to say and helpful is that people should go shopping. he got criticized for that. in other words, life just go on and we shouldn't succumb to someone who wants to do us harm would want us to do which is to totally change the way we live our lives. be aware of it, be vigilant but not ahh bow it to change us to become a totally different nation and people. heather: tucker how do you think president obama has handled the terrorist attack in boston so far in terms of public statements. >> fine so far. the pressure these guys face is to act and to do so quickly. blue densblue dense looks a lot like weakness and that is nothing you can ever show as a leader. these guys are underee memory news pressure to do something or seem like they are doing some. this is not aimed at the current president, would i say all presidents, that is why you wind up with bad policy when you act before you understand the consequences of your a

with the iraq war, perceived as the sort of crimes of the bush administration they wanted it to end and the obama administration has sold people a bill of goods. the idea that the drone war is actually clean. which is why i call it dirty wars. when you kill people in yemen, pakistan or somalia that aren't attached to terrorism, you're giving people an actual incentive to want to attack the united states. and so if you look at the poll numbers, liberals are very much lock step with the white house right now on this drone issue. no way -- >> stunning. >> no way -- >> that is stunning the same people, many of them calling for george w. bush's impeachment are calling for a war crimes trial after he left. and yet, again, this white house is actually, like you said, carried on a lot of the bush/cheney legacy in this area and made it far more intense, especially on drone strikes. >> also, one of the stories i do in the book. i was in yemen and somalia and afghanistan and elsewhere reporting the stories over the years. in somalia, i discovered that the obama administration is using a prison

terrorism is semantics. but i have to say i have never understood why president obama didn't use it. there is a policy difference between this administration and the bush administration. why the word terrorism being removed from the vocabulary. the war on terror. whatever the word terror means, we don't care about the word, we know it when we see it. which is mindless murder of innocent people. >> stephanie: right. >> why we're worried about that word, i have no idea. >> stephanie: but the white house said it the same day they said clearly this is an act of terror -- >> right. and clearly the political right jumps to i think much too quick on why didn't he use that word is because there is some basis that early on there was a reluctance in the white house to talk about the war on terror. can you explain to me why there was that reluctance somebody said that's what gorge bush said? i have no idea but you are right, let's focus on this horrible murder that has occurred. i define terrorism of mindless murder. >> to the right-wing terrorism is synonymous with islam
